This is how I make the tomato rasam which is very tasty especially in winter. You can also have this as a Tomato soup.
Ingredients1 can Chopped Tomato 2 grape sized Tamarind 2 inch Ginger, Cut roundly and then smashed, add as many ginger as you want for your taste 5 cloves of Garlic, crushed 2 tsp of Rasam Powder Pinch of Asafoetida
- Pour some hot water over the tamarind and wait for about 15 min for them to soften and then make a tamrind water out of them.
- Place all the ingredients in the vessel and allow it to boil for about 15-20 min.
- Serve hot with rice.
P.S. You can add the south indian tarka over the top of rasam if you want. I like my rasam to be little thick, so I boil them for about 25 min.
